In the long run, the only sustainable source of competitive adavantage is your organization's ability to learn faster than its competition. Founder and Director of the Center for Organizational Learning at MIT's Sloan School of Management, which boasts such members as Intel, Ford, Herman Miller, and Harley Davidson, Peter M. Senge has found a means of creating a "learning organization." In The Fifth Discipline, he draws the blueprints for an organization where people expand their capacity to create the results they truly desire, where new and expansive patterns of thinking are nurtured, where collective aspiration is set free, and where people are continually learning how to learn together. The Fifth Discipline fuses these features into a coherent body of theory and practice, making the whole of an organization more effective than the sum of its parts. Company after company, from Intel to AT&T to Procter&Gamble to Coopers and Lybrand, have adopted the disciplines of the learning organization to rid themselves of the learning "disabilities" [1].
